Run Sixty-One: This keeps getting better!

Oh, wow, y'all!! This is so cool! Another
best-best! ::happy dance::
Thunderstorms and heat kept me on the treadmill this evening. This worked out totally fine as I beat Saturday's treadmill run -- just kept going with the 4.7 to 5 miles an hour when running (and 3.7 mostly when walking). It felt so great -- I could tell I was pushing, but being able to push like that and go so well is just awesome!

I'm even starting to dig being all sweaty when I finish. When I started this back in January, I hardly got sweaty at all because I just couldn't do much. Now the sweat is like a badge of how far I've come.

I've found a way to beat the lack of stimulation of the treadmill -- I got the second season of the TV show Castle through Google Play and can watch it on our tablet. One episode is exactly the right length for one of my runs (with the cool-down after). It's kind of fun to have something to focus on (so I don't obsess about time and that sort of thing). And it mixes up nicely with the road where I have birdies and squirrels and other runners and the ups and downs of the sidewalk to pay attention to. 

Next run is scheduled for Wednesday. From the weather report I heard this morning, I'm hoping I'll be out on the road. ::fingers crossed:: If I am on the road, my goal is to go more than 2.7 miles. If I'm on the treadmill, I want to do better than this run (2.8 miles isn't too far off, right?). :D
